Letter to the Editor: Democracy at risk | The Standard Newspaper – Waukon Standard

To the Editor:
Senator Charles Grassley, Representatives Ashley Hinson and Mariannette Miller-Meeks, and Governor Kim Reynolds have sworn an oath to support the U.S. Constitution which entails protecting and defending it against all enemies foreign and domestic.  And yet, there they were at a rally in Des Moines lending their support to the man who organized and led the failed coup that attempted to overthrow our free and fair election. Trump continues to spew his Big Lie in an attempt to set the stage for a successful coup in 2024.
If elected leaders refuse to defend democratic voting procedures, democracies die. Republicans have truly become the anti-democratic and authoritarian party. The only hope to save our democracy is to vote them out of office.
Thomas W. Hill
